Before getting on the water on Sunday morning, Amanda CALLAHAN of Silver Panda said, 'The conditions are great here, ideal actually. They're perfect for team racing.' And that certainly turned out to be true for Silver Panda, which started its day by defeating Team Adirondack in the quarter-final 2-0, then faced arch rivals and 2005 ISAF Team Racing World Champions Cape Cod WHishbone in the semis, dismissing them with a 3-0 win.
The finals saw classic downtown San Diego conditions, sunshine, ten knots from west and flat water! Silver Panda won three straight victories over Larchmont Yacht Club to take the Hinman Trophy.
